When it comes to skin, most people have a few bad habits they regularly indulge in. We test out products, wash our faces regularly, moisturize… but it turns out that some of our most persistent habits can be bad for our skin. Today, we’re here to divulge some of our skin tips that might just help you achieve your best skin ever.
You Pick at Your Skin
We admit it is very difficult to keep your hands off blackheads, whiteheads and pimples. They aren’t wanted on your face and squeezing them seems like a quick fix, except that the damage you’re doing to your skin is probably worse than having the blemish to begin with. Picking at your skin and the damage that comes with it can stay visible on your skin far longer than if you decided to just leave the blemish there. Acne scars can form and those can take weeks, if not months, to correct. Additionally, if your fingers are not clean you could be pushing germs and grease onto your skin, only making your breakouts worse. The simple solution is to keep your hands off your face.
You’re exfoliating too much/too little
Exfoliation helps get rid of dead skin cells on the surface of your skin and allows products to work effectively. Make sure to exfoliate at least once a week either with a product that has gentle fruit acids. Avoid exfoliating too often as this can irritate your skin and make it break out more often, especially with very hard granular products that use sand or crystals.
You don’t use sunscreen
Not a day should go by, when you face the world sans sun protection. If you take SPF application seriously and have it as an essential part of your daily skin care routine, then you are on the right track. SPF can help keep some common signs of skin aging, like fine lines, wrinkles and age spots from developing prematurely. Not to mention, regular application can also better your chances for a more even-looking skin tone.
You don’t clean your makeup brushes.
Besides being good for keeping your makeup looks popping, cleaning your makeup brushes on a regular basis is also a fundamental aspect of a good skin care routine.
We know that we need water to do all the things our body needs to do. One is transporting nutrients to the places they need to go. Another is flushing out the impurities we don’t wanting hanging around. So do yourself a favor and drink up!
And there you have it,incorporate these routines and notice a huge difference. Also make sure to catch 7-8 hours of sleep to feel and look well-rested when you wake up!
